First, I'd like to say "thank you" to everyone that has helped me thus far......I would be clueless (more than I am now) otherwise. I've come to the conclusion that I'll be using a spare laptop (Gateway Solo 1150) as my car pc, and would like to know how the audio will connect to the aux-in on my headunit? My CQC-8300U Panasonic has an RCA for Aux-out, but do I need an adapter to get sound from the laptop? Also, I'm wanting to find an internal dvd-rom for the unit, but can't find a compatibility list anywhere. Can someone point me in the right direction, besides If I'm going to mount the drive in the dash (is that possible?) can I get any slimline dvd-rom off of ebay and expect it to be compatible? Is there an extremely long (don't really know what I'm asking about...) 20-pin ribbon cable that would connect the dash-mounted internal to the laptop (which would be under the passenger seat)? Sorry if I'm a bit vague, but I hope that someone can help. Thanks!
No announcement yet.
